Pollock House Maze

By Irishkate  
Taken on my day out at Pollock House this week.
Thank you all for comments re Water Lily yesterday.
It seems I got carried away with the yellow Epz border.
I only recently discovered how to choose a colour other than,
the four choices on upload page.
So I'm back to being conservative tonight!
Also Gary didn't like the text on image.
Normally at our Camera Club, judges don't go for captions either
so Ephotozine does give me an opportunity to test the water
before submitting entries to club competitions.
So don't worry anybody who feels badly re crits -
I generally learn more from honest comments than
everybody saying "lovely image". I do want to improve
and I don't say an image is perfect if I think it can be improved

A very impressive piece of architecture, stunning grounds, and certainly a grand place in which to capture great images such as this.

I feel quite at home with this one, Kate: the shadowed side of Pollok House across the Library Garden, nicely captured in this contre jour shot. I pass by here many a time each week.

Kate, nice idea here and sometimes we forget what's on our doorstep. I've found it hard working during the day in strong light, but would still rather go out and have fun. I think truly if we are all truthful there would be improvements to make in all our shots. I know the falts in mine, the road is long but I think might get soother as we go.....great colour and detail.

Not a good time of day to take landscapes Kate! But you have to make the best of what you have got, the lighting is harsh but you have retained detail in shadow and highlights, like the shapes of the maze and colours.

I think you hav done well to encompass all the shapes in this formal layout Kate and while the garden is in full sun the house provides a a very calm bg.

Somebody mentioned it not being the right time of day and light, boy oh boy I would like some of this light and lovely blue sky instead of the awful weather at the moment, this certainly cheers me up no end so well done Kate. - gary

A classic house and garden captured in very bright light (lucky you!). Well done KateSmileSmile

Great subject. You asked for comments so here goes. I wonder why portrait as opposed to landscape crop because although you have included the garden in the foreground there is alot of unused sky. Maybe a re compose may assist. From an exposure perspective there are some areas (blocked) totally black and lacking detail either side of the main house. Hope any of this helps. Regards Russell

I'm amazed that there are folks on here moaning about the harsh sunlight given the awful summer we've experienced this year!!! Carol G must have had to put with far worse in Crete where it is blue skies and temperatures of 35+ degrees everyday! Wink I'm surprised my uncle the Tomact hasn't put his two penneth in, when there's moaning to be done about the weather he is normally right at the front of the queue!Tongue
